History of the Paleo Alphabet

The Paleo Alphabet was first widely used after the Exodus from Egypt. Most famously it was used to inscribe the 10 commandments "by the finger of god." It became the alphabet for the community that left Egypt at that time.

About 500 years later Solomon sent a letter to Hiram requesting a trade, grain for logs, so Solomon could build his temple. That letter was in this same Paleo Alphabet.

Hiram was the king of Phoenicia, and he adopted Solomon's alphabet for his international trading. Today the world ascribes the name of the alphabet to Hiram's kingdom, calling it Phoenician. Hiram was interested in only 2 features from the Paleo Alphabet. For Hiram it was the set of Glyphs, or 2D letter shapes, and their pronunciation. The term Phoenician Alphabet only refers to an alphabet with these 2 features.

The term Paleo Alphabet refers to an alphabet with precisely defined Phoenician letter shapes and a series of advanced features. Examples of advanced features include a precise meaning for each letter in the Paleo Alphabet. Another advanced feature uses the letter definitions to provide precise definitions for all inspired words written in the alphabet. A related Paleo Alphabet feature provides every word with a secondary definition also based on its spelling.

Another Paleo Alphabet feature builds models for stories that form a natural narrative. Those narratives provide prophetic vocabulary that are the subject of stories in inspired scripture. Yet another feature of the Paleo Alphabet lays out key parts of a letter based auditing system for pages of inspired text.

Loss of the Paleo Alphabet

Most of the advanced features of the alphabet involve understanding a 3 dimensional set of models that back up the 2 dimensional drawn form of the alphabet.

The language systems of human beings can use some of the more advanced features of the Paleo Alphabet. Human beings writing down their own thoughts cannot use all of the Paleo Alphabet features at the same time. Documents which are using all the alphabet features thus exhibit a Paleo Alphabet-based signature of divine authorship.

During the time of the Babylonian Captivity, the use of Phoenician for sacred scripture was ended and a new alphabet was invented by the prophet Daniel and his king, Nebuchadnezzar. That set of letter shapes is called the Hebrew Alphabet. Though very old, it is still not inspired, coming as it did around 1000 years after the Exodus.

Hebrew letter shapes were designed by holding a human hand in a particular shape and then casting a shadow of that hand onto paper. By pitching and rolling the hand, about like an old IBM Selectric typewriter's ball, each Hebrew letter shape was formed. Because the shapes are a shadow, that alphabet is hinted prophetically with concepts around a flame, one which will eventually pass away.

Hebrew has no visual similarity to Phoenician, though the mapping between letters is known. This was an intentional change that supported a broader effort to rewrite inspired scripture that got fully underway in Nebuchadnezzar's day.

As originally inspired, key features of the Paleo Alphabet were used as the pattern for the high level narrative. These features show up as the book, chapter and verse system of inspired scripture. In particular there are high level themes related to the meaning of the letters. There are also high level themes driven by the 3D foldings within the letters. These features must be learned when the Paleo Alphabet is learned.

Added books, added chapters, and added verses, of which there are many throughout common Bibles, all interrupt the underlying Paleo Alphabet inspired super structure. By moving away from the Paleo Alphabet the editors allowed themselves free hand at gross changes to the high level story. Widespread Nebuchadnezzar era editing of inspired scripture could no longer be detected by helpless readers. This is the reason for the tears in Ezra's day. Some in the audience knew the crime.

The recovery of the language system used to write inspired scripture is foretold in various places. The story of the Phoenician Woman's famous crumbs from the table is a parable of recovering the Phoenician Alphabet. The "small scroll" in the Book of Revelation is another famous reference to the recovery of the entire inspired manuscript that sits atop this same alphabet. The Small Scroll's key feature being a size much smaller than the Bible itself.
